The Ultimate Liveaboard  ****SOLD***SOLD****SOLD***

Well step 1 in Lisa Mackay and Trevor Ian May's plans to sail around the world is to sell the mighty Roval.... she is an awesome liveaboard who also happens to sail very well!!!

Roval truly is a floating apartment, and I shall be very sorry to see her go. But I'm off to sail around the world, so this is step 1 in buying the offshore boat! 

Roval was great already when I bought her 2 years ago, but since then I have put in: 

- A full 240V electrical system (2016) 
- A 170ltr holding tank (2016) 
- a custom-made inner sprung mattress (2016) 
- a full-size 12v/240v fridge freezer (2016) 
- a new bimini on the stern cockpit (total of about $33K) 
- A full keel and topsides paint November 2017 ($30K job) 
- All new batteries - $1k (2018) 
- full engine service September 2018 

She has a master double cabin with ensuite, bunk cabin, walk-in closet, indoor shower, and outdoor shower, and 2 electric toilets, Large living room with 2 sofa’s and 2 arm chairs, ottoman, kitchen dining room with 6/8 seater dining table and all the mod cons. She sleeps a total of 9 people. 

She comes with all the normal boatie bits - GPS, Dinghy, outboard, Radar, electric anchor winch, VHF, Eperb, auto-helm, 65hp Commander BMP engine, 1,000 lts water, 400lts fuel etc. Plus the live-aboard essentials of microwave, kettle, de-humidifier, toaster, 4 burner stove and oven 

Not only is she a very comfortable live-a-board boat, but she also sails very well. She is a Stewart 45 (Bob Stewart Design), Triple skin Kauri Construction. And, much to the chagrin of some of my fellow club members, on a beam reach she flies! We have had her up over 11.5knts, but don’t worry, the rum was still not in danger of being spilt, as she is a very stable boat. Under motor she cruises at 6 to 7 knts, and under sail at 8 to 9 knts 

Roval is currently moored at Hobsonville Marina but can obviously be relocated wherever you need her to be….as long as there is sea access! 

Come and have a look! 

Roval is a seriously amazing boat, so feel free to call me, and/or come along and have a look. Lisa Mackay 021741544….NB if you get the HRtoolkit answer service, please leave a message it gets texted straight to me!

Drofin 13hp Diesel Marine Engine **PRICE REDUCED -BUY NOW FOR $100 & 1 BOX OF CARLSBERG!!!!!****Sold!!!!

This sweet little Italian thumper has done more miles the Pope mobile. 
With the Engine casing Resplendent in Faux mustard one will notice the addition of The Tropic orange full mechanical gear box which was replaced in 2011.
In the words of an award winning architect “ This juxtaposition of colours accented by the orange injector saddle and white air filters is pure genius” he goes on to add “ the carbon marking caused by a previous unseated injector reflects the its rustic roots as a tractor engine in the Tuscan country side.” 

Cast in magnesium alloy by the Francisco monks ( and one frisky nun) its’s light weight design and unsettling clunky running noise should scare every one of its 13 horses right out of the farm gate. At revolutions above 5 its decisive unbalanced nature has caused so much vibration, many whales have beached themselves rather than stay in the sea any longer. In a statement from the New Zealand department of conservation “We once had a vessel powered by a droffin cruising 20 miles offshore past golden bay at the top of the south island. This caused such a large number of whales to strand that we had to sell them to the Japanese.” 

With no heat exchanger, thus sucking seawater straight through its inner workings the drofin attempts to pollute the water column in even the most pristine of environments. Once you throw caution to the wind and push the throttle past 10 rpm you will note the beginnings of what you may think is the apocalypse. In the words of a war hardened veteran “ no, no this is surely the end” 


The engine has been removed for re powering from a marauder 8.4 and was in working order however I would not recommend installing it without a full professional mechanical check. 

Maybe good for hard to find parts, especially the gear box. 

Sold as is, where is. 

Comes with 

Engine Mounts 
Solenoid electric shut off 
Instrument panel – rpm – temp – oil pressure – volts. (no wiring support offered)
